Complete frame off restoration, new paint, new tires tubes flaps, new top, new interior, radiator has new core, new battery...ect.... 30x3.5 wheels all around and they don't look too bad on the car it sits up like a 4X4.
What's it worth if I sell it...?
Also comes with the correct headlights. And nickel rad shell.
Cool car looks great and really like the color. I just hope I can make mine look half that nice. Tim
Like the color. I am not looking to buy but you asked. Without more info to go on;
What about the mechanical bits? Full rebuild including the rear end? Clean and paint? Over haul; rings and valve job with no work to rear end?
Do you have a clear title?
Frame off means different things to different people. Sorry but when someone talks about the paint and bling but does not say anything about the heart of the car leave me wondering.
Was the build documented ? ?
It seems you never recover what you put into any true " frame off restoration " but as Mark stated the term means different things to different folks.
If the entire process was documented with images & receipts - that would bring top dollar.
Steve, in Australia there were a few early 26 cars which came with 30 x 3.5" clinchers and the big brake drum rear axle. Those skinny little tyres do look a little inadequate though.
Allan from down under.
Don't have the receipts in hand but have known the fellow for a few years, I think he's ok at his word but will ask for all the documentation he's the one that did all the grunt work he was supposed to have had the engine work done by someone he knows as well as the transmission. If I remember correctly he asked me how to set the mesh on the ring and pinion gear last year... starter and generator is rebuilt also.
So with that said and I obtained the receipts what's the car worth? I've never messed with the 26-27 T's at all used to own a Tudor but never restored it, I paid $50.00 for it and sold it for $750. It was a turd! Thanks for the replies so far.
Good to know Allan, I thought they all came with 21 inch
Steve is this the one that came out of a barn loft down your way? Saw it a few years back as removed from loft and it came with 30X3.5. Seems it was put up in the loft during the forties so his brother wouldn't drive it. Interesting car with interesting story.
Hello Warren... I got your PM. I'll give you a call soon.
As for the T it very well could be the one your talking about, I will do some more digging and try to find out. That would be a great story to hear.
I think the loft car was a 13 or 16 with brass radiator. I wanted it but never got a reply to messages so don't know where it went.
